Get the Look: Camilla Belle’s Bold Purple Lip

March 11, 2014

Yesterday we looked at bold lip colours and how you can pull them off. Then we saw Camilla Belle’s stunning purple lip at the premiere of her new movie, Cavemen. Celebrity makeup artist Brett Freedman shares how he created Camilla’s striking makeup.

Skin
Brett started with Make Up For Ever HD Invisible Cover Foundation finished with two setting powders: MAC Blot Powder in Medium Dark, and then Laura Mercier Mineral Pressed Powder SPF 15 in Golden Suntan.

Instead of blush, he applied Lorac Perfectly Lit Oil-Free Luminizing Powder for a luminous glow.

Eyes
With a bold lip, you need to keep the eyes soft. Brett used the neutral shadows from the SauceBox Cosmetics Creme de la Creme Palette.

He coated the lashes using good old drugstore favourite L’Oréal Paris Voluminus Mascara in Carbon Black.

Brett finished Camilla’s killer eyebrows using his own Brett Brow Duo-Shade Powder in Dark Brown.

Lips

When you’re applying a bold lipstick, always start with lip balm, to create a soft and smooth base.

Brett used Kevyn Aucoin The Matte Lip Color in Persistence to achieve this unique purple finish – it’s pigment-rich, so you don’t have to blot, but it’s a good way to set the colour into the lip. Then apply another coat.

Would you try a bold purple like Camilla’s?
